My name is Jamieson K. Price, and I am the voice of the Count of Monte Cristo in Gankutsuou. As a product of my role as the Count of Monte Cristo, and being the voice of this character, I think I can properly answer any of your questions about how I became an actor, and the path I took to keep pursuing acting, as well as what's the most challenging part about voicing this character.
At a very young age, I used to tell my parents repeatedly, "I want to be the next William Shatner. That's it. I want to be the next William Shatner. I want to be on [the] show." And then one day, I got to be William Shatner on Billions, as an extra for one episode in Season 1. After that, I knew I wanted to be in television all the time. I had always been a performer as a child, whether it was through theater, performing as a ventriloquist, or just tricking around at parties, but being in front of the camera was something different. I didn't tell my family what I wanted to do for a living right away because I was afraid they wouldn't understand, but that was probably the best decision for me. I paid my first two or three years of dues as an extra, most of those being on [the] show [of my choice]. Then I graduated to more main acting roles, and even landed on The CW's Stargate: Atlantis. d2c66b5586
